Kotobukiya’s 1/144 Dygenguar is Bigger Than Your Head!


I don’t know where Dygenguar is from other than one of the Super Robot Wars games, but this box for Kotobukiya’s 1/144 Dygenguar model is bigger than any 1/144 kit that I’ve seen save the massive HGUC 1/144 Dendrobium. Check out the detailing on the face.

Dygenguar Face

Fucking sweet!

So it’s way too late to buy this thing as an X-Mas present for your favorite mech head, but you could hand over a bag of cash so that he (read: me) can buy it from HobbyLink Japan for ¥29,800 ($334.31 USD). No idea how tall he stands once complete, but I bet it towers over any Gundam HGUC 1/144 kit. *drooooool*

SD Duberu Oh

SD Duberu Oh

Modeler and Gundam blogger, AZM Ally Jacques just completed his SD BB Senshi Gundam Duberu Oh. Okay, so the SD Duberu Oh is pretty darn cute. And I love how clean the build is. Panel lines are crisp and the paint job is excellent. You can check out some build up shots over here.

Early Kamen Rider Dragon Knight Review

Kamen Rider Dragon Knight Riders

I missed the sneak preview of Kamen Rider Dragon Knight on December 13 because I was out of town. But AZM Ally Mike Dent has a quick review of the premier episode. From what I gather, it seems like Dragon Knight is starting out on the right foot. I hope this is just the start of more American Kamen Rider. I really want Faiz to come soon because I really want Faiz belts. I’ll be the first in line if they’re sold in Toys R Us. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Dragon Knight drops January 3 on the CW. It’s going to kick all sorts of ass!

Kamen Rider Decade in Action

I must confess, I’m not sure what to think about Kamen Rider Decade. I don’t much like the design of his armor. But the notion of seeing some of my favorite Heisei era riders back in action intrigues me. And Gackt is doing the theme song so how bad can it be?

2009 marks the tenth anniversary of the Heisei Era riders. Apparently, Kamen Rider Decade will call on the power of the past riders to kick major ass so we’ll get cameos from Kuuga, Agito, Ryuki (or Dragon Knight as we know him), Faiz, Blade, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O, and Kiva. My favorite Heisei rider is Faiz. Faiz introduced me to the franchise and will always have a special place in my heart. I also love the design of Kabuto but I really wish the show did more with the Hopper Riders. So I don’t know. Some of my favorite suits will be back in action. But Den-O really killed my interest in the Riders. Kiva didn’t help much. And Decade looks ridiculous. I realize I’m talking about a show aimed at Japanese grammar school children, but seriously, what the fuck is up with Decade’s grill? Bleh.

I’ll give the old R5 Central five episode rule before I make a final decision. But I’m not terribly hopeful.

Polysics – Domo Arigato

Polysics does an amazing cover of Styx’s “Mr. Roboto.” The video demonstrates the dangers of hiring slightly emotionally unbalanced robotos for your video shoots. I love the part where he roboto punches the kids! That’s right kids, don’t fuck with the megazord!

Peelander Z is BIG in Japan

I can think of no better way to start off Tokusatsu Tuesday than with some Peelander Z action! They’re fucking huge! There’s a new Peelander Z album in the works and I’m guessing this is a video shoot for one of their new songs. I’m so excited to see kaiju-sized Peelanders!

Final Fantasy 13 Trailers Make Pants Difficult to Wear

This is a trailer for the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII Versus.

And here’s one for Final Fantasy XIII that they played during some sort of Square event during the summer.

From what I understand, Final Fantasy XIII will be available on 360 as well which makes me all sorts of giddy.

Now as mind blowingly amazing as these trailers are, there’s absolutely no actual game play footage. I have little doubt that this game will be fucking gorgeous and that the actual in game graphics will probably come damn close to what we’ve just witnessed. But I’m disappointed that there’s no game play footage. I’ll wait until we see some gaming footage before I consider reserving a copy. Still, awful damn pretty. My brain meats nearly leaked out of my nose after watching the trailers.
